    I'm really contemplating getting a forehead reduction surgery. Since its similar to a hair transplant I'd love to hear some stories.

    I'm also going to Thailand at the end of the year which would be the perfect time. However it seems most Thai places specialize in white or Asian hair. Because black people scar so easily this concerns me so I most likely will get it done in the states. I miss my dread locs but this widows peak ain't cute lol. I ain't old yet.

    I can understand where you are coming from. Especially with all the judgment guys get for having plastic surgery or using steroids. I'm sure there are a few dudes here who had it done and don't care how some judgmental queen thinks about it.

    I suggest the following.....
    1. liposuction
    2. Dental work
    3. Excess skin removal
    4. Chest implants
    5. Chest hair implants
    6. Join a gym and that will do wonders
    7. Stop being so vain

    It's another term for lowering the hairline via surgery.

    I can always count on you to try to bring me down. Your negativity is so pervasive it comes off more like a parody than anything to take seriously.

    I was just offering a few other suggestions. I am not the negative one here. I think your head is the least of your worries!!

    I'm only quoting you to preserve your hate. Its gay men like you that led me to hating myself and trying to kill myself threw a soft suicide for over a decade of my life. I'm truly happy you wrote those words. I'll remember the pain you tried to inflict on me. I'll continue to do my best not to follow a similar path. I'm not perfect but I'm proud of the man that I've become.

    Forehead reduction surgery?

    I thought it was called scalp reduction.

    If you go the tattoo route DON'T get one of those perfect hairlines, they're a DEAD GIVEAWAY.

    Francois Sagat has one. It looks very obvious to me in video.

    The perfect hairline isn't what gives it away in black guys. Dudes here in Houston keep there hair on point in a serious way. Guys will keep there hair sharp before being able to keep a roof over there head.

    That must be the old way fore hairline lowering. It goes by many names. Now they just implant hair follicles from the back. Its similar to getting a hair

    I understand the desire but i would think about the consequences if you end up feeling like you look worse than before in your own eyes?

    An ex gf of mine, a pretty much perfect looking blue eyed all-american cheerleader type, got her breasts and lips and eyes done in her mid 20s. I can understand why she did it, cause she felt like she didn't look the way she wanted even though everyone around her thought she was pretty.

    I can't see anyway, after the work, she couldn't of regretted it. It came out bad. She already had self-esteem issues, how much worse are they now?

    In a way, it's almost riskier for the people who feel they need these procedures, because they have more to lose. I guess the surgery you are considering isn't too risky, but what's the cost in reinforcing the idea that you need to change this about yourself? Isn't there just going to be a new thing that you are missing after the "new you" becomes the regular you? 5-10 years from now there is going to be new wrinkles and new whatever...you aren't going to run out of things to fix most likely.

    Would the money, energy, time just not be better spent on more practical methods of self-improvement?

    It's good you can identify that. I sometimes struggle with the reasons why i want to kill myself, in those brief moments when i give it consideration.

    Two things that make me the most positive about why it's silly, is the idea of future technologies and the realisation of how fast time passes. No need to call for the cheque, the waiter will be here soon enough.


    That's also sort of my feeling an medical procedures. I will wait maybe 20-30 more years and then hopefully they'll have shit more perfected.

    Thanks buttercup. I understand where you are coming from but I disagree that this is an attempt at a new me that will just fade. The same can be said for my tattoo and piercings and I am sure many on real jock feel that way about me. The truth is this is simply something I have always wanted. It won't be a new me. If anything it will be a return to an old me just slightly improved. My sole reason to get a my hair line lowered is to start growing my dreads again. A lot of people hate dreadlocks but I love how I look with them. I just don't like how high my hairline is. I never had. As a teen I wore bangs to cover it up.

    I have thought about other surgeries but they just wouldn't feel like as much of an improvement. They would just feel different which is not what I am going for. I am trying to enhance what I see in the mirror. Bring more of my personality into my looks.

    They have gotten really good at forehead reductions and hair transplants. I think the only improvements left to make would be to not need a donor site. Not doing something to improve myself because I might be afraid of a bad outcome is something that held me back for years. Shit happens. I'll just say I tried it didn't work and see it as a life lesson. I would rather have a scare on my face than to go 50 more years thinking, I can't try. It might not work out.

    If you're talking about the picture with the visible stitches on the guy's head, then yeah, I agree with you. But look up craniotomy. That's what it looks like to me.
